Matthew McConaughey has found out how to lose a lot of weight in 10 days a short period of time.

The star was spotted at LAX airport on November 9 and then again in New Orleans on November 12 (pictured below) looking shockingly frail, prompting concerns over his dramatic weight loss. In other words, say goodbye to the muscular beefcake whom we all drooled over in Magic Mike. (We weren't the only ones drooling, right?)

The actor — who has also appeared in The Lincoln Lawyer and How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days — has now lost 30 pounds and is at his "absolute lowest weight," a source tells People.

The reason for the weight loss? The actor has started filming a new movie called The Dallas Buyer's Club, in which he plays an AIDS patient in the mid-'80s. 

Matthew apparently plans to return to his normal weight in a month. That sound you just heard was the world breathing a huge sigh of relief.
